The Next 95 Days!

The Next 95 Days!

The Next 95 Days!

Today is Day 270. There are 95 days remaining this year.

A few weeks ago, I began thinking about what we could accomplish in Vinia by the end of 2022. We discussed this at our staff meeting. We shared several factors that would contribute to success – determination, self-leadership, deadlines, accountability, habits. Each of us considered what it would take to reach our goals.

What can you and your team accomplish before the end of this year to the glory of God?

What would it take to get there? John Lee Dumas suggests that we need these three things:

  • A clear goal
  • A specific plan to accomplish that goal
  • The discipline to invest the time, energy, and effort to execute that plan

No matter what your goal, if you invest your time, energy, and effort each day toward reaching it – you will make significant progress.

What’s worth pursuing?

Here are a few questions to process with your team:

  • Is our goal clear?
  • Does our goal really matter to us?
  • Are we able to measure the success of our goal when we achieve it?
  • Do we have the tools and resources we need?
  • Who can help us get there?
  • What’s our first step?

I like the perspective that Paul shared with the Corinthians – “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”

And Paul shared with the Philippians – “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

There are plenty of obstacles and challenges to keep us from pressing on. Let’s run in such a way as to get the prize.

Our Vinia team is here to help you pursue your goals. We have coaches that can help you gain clarity and get results. We have cohorts that will provide support, challenge, and encouragement. We have training, strategies, and systems to help you grow as a leader.

Let’s be about it together!
